Biography

Born Of Osiris is an American metal band from Palatine, Illinois. Born Of Osiris has gone through a number of name changes including Your Heart Engraved, Diminished and Rosecrance; the band, after playing with an abundance of names, finally stayed with "Born Of Osiris" in 2007, basing the name off the Egyptian deity Osiris, and the tale of his son Horus.

The group is signed to Sumerian Records and has released two full lengths and two EPs on the label. Their album, A Higher Place, reached number 73 on the Billboard 200. Their second full-length album, The Discovery, released March 22, 2011, debuted at 87 on the Billboard 200.

Born of Osiris has played at various festivals including the Summer Slaughter Tour (2008 and 2009) and the Music As A Weapon Tour 4. In 2009, they played on a co-headline tour named The Night of the Living Shred Tour with All Shall Perish, After The Burial, Caliban and Suffokate; Born of Osiris also supported Hatebreed on the Decimation of the Nation Tour 2, alongside Cannibal Corpse, Unearth and Hate Eternal. In December 2009, they asked Jason Richardson of All Shall Perish to join Born of Osiris. This began a two-year period of member stability which resulted in the writing and release of The Discovery.

On December 21, 2011, Born of Osiris fired guitarist Jason Richardson without prior notice. The official press release came three weeks later. Richardson immediately joined Salt Lake City deathcore act Chelsea Grin following his departure from the band. In response to the official statement released by the band, he wrote a scathing status update on his personal Facebook page, stating that the other band members frequently abused alcohol and prescription drugs such as Opana ER, OxyContin and Heroin and that his disapproval towards this lifestyle was the reason that he was fired. This post caused a mixed reaction: Jason received backlash from some fans but many sympathized with his situation. Jason also stated in this post that he was involved in the writing process for the next Chelsea Grin album.

A video was posted showing guitarist Lee Mckinney working on a new riff, which is believed to be part of a song which will feature on the next Born of Osiris release. He also had an eight string guitar built for him by the UK based company Invictus Guitars, suggesting another direction that the next release will take.

Lee McKinney has started a side project called Mechanize (originally named Mecha but the name had to be changed for legal reasons), in which he produces original electronic music and remixes other artists. David Darocha has also started his own jewelry line called D A V I. Cameron Losch, Lee McKinney and former guitarist Jason Richardson are all instructors on the music teaching website Bandhappy, which is owned by Matt Halpern, the drummer of Born of Osiris's label mate Periphery.

On June 25th, 2013, the Sumerian Records YouTube page uploaded a new Born of Osiris song entitled "M∆CHINE" as well as information on their new album titled Tomorrow We Die ∆live, that is to be released on August 20th.
